  • The mixtures of gases he created to come up with the atomic theory.

Impacts on Society

The symbols for the molecules he found and wooden molecule shapes he made are found in high schools and collages today. These things can help students who want have a field chemistry, and to know more about the universe. He also helped with finding more about color blindness. This way people will know how to help people with it.

additional things
Additional Things
  • I thought it was interesting how he didn’t let the fact that he was severely color blind get in the way. My research said that the only color he could see was yellow!
  • One of his famous quotes was, “This paper will no doubt be found interesting by those who take an interest in it.”
  • He did not have a specific work area because, for one he always had his journal for recording data with him, and since he had do travel a lot for lectures and what not I think he just worked at the closes lab.

  • He was teaching at his village school by the age of 12.
  • He was a Quaker his whole life.
  • He had three strokes within about four years before he finally died.
  • He had a brother named Jonathan and a sister named Mary.
  • He was never married.
